The National Taxi Alliance says it condemns the spate of violence linked to taxes in Gauteng.
A grade six pupil, Rethabile Rapuleng, was shot dead after being caught in the crossfire between rival taxi associations in Katlehong on Thursday.
On Wednesday, a group of five men opened fire on an elderly man who was picking up school children killing him and a schoolgirl, and on Sunday afternoon, media personality Relebogile Mabotja and her family say they were intimidated by a taxi association in Zandspruit, north of Johannesburg.
Taxi operators have also been accused of illegally impounding or forcing motorists to pay a fee for transporting private citizens.
Bongani Bingwa talks to National Taxi Alliance spokesperson Theo Malele about the events.
Malele says the association condemns these attacks and violence has become endemic in the taxi industry.
You have some unruly elements with people that don't want to toe the line and think that violence is the answer to their problems. The behaviour of some taxi operators is nonsense, even animals don't behave like this.— Theo Malele, Spokesperson - National Taxi Alliance
